Mastercard and Synchrony are sponsoring a unique and innovative engagement at the Happy Hour on Wednesday (9 pm - 11 pm) at the Women in the World Summit!
All 200 VIP attendees at the Happy Hour will receive a contactless payment wristband with a pre-loaded monetary amount of $100 - $150 for each attendee to use!

As part of this activation, Mastercard and Synchrony want to ensure that every vendor at the Boutique Curated by Renegade Craft can accept payment through contactless transactions. To get started, let us know about your payment system(s) by Monday 3/11.

To allow support for Contactless Transactions and seamless customer experience, the sponsors are recommending vendors enable contactless transactions via the Clover Go device, if you do not already have a payment system in place. These devices will be provided to each boutique owner, you would be required to set up a free Clover account for these transactions if you do not already have an account. Contactless payment must remain an available option of payment for the three days of the Boutique.

NOTE! You will not be required to change your payment system, and your participation in the Boutique is not at risk if you do not have the hardware for contactless transactions. The sponsors will provide devices for vendors who do not have the necessary hardware.

We will share more details soon!


We encourage you to accept credit cards and cash at the Fair. Many mobile card readers now provide offline mode capabilities for your device or tablet, which allows you to accept swiped card payments when Internet service or your connection is giving you trouble.

If you are using a processing device without WiFi, still keep in mind that the network sometimes gets a little crowded. If you’re having trouble, we recommend taking down the customer’s credit card information/telephone number and running the charge later when you have a stable connection.

Your footprint at the Fair measures 8’ x 8’ for a full booth.

Your booth display is entirely up to you, and we encourage you to make your setup just as creative as the goods you are selling.

For indoor venues, participants are no longer allowed to bring in tent structures.


Please note that all rental orders are due on Sunday, 3/31, no exceptions! If you do not submit a rental request you are responsible for providing your own display items.

Make sure to consider your booth size and display when requesting rental items.

Head here to request available rentals for this Fair.


Our Roster for the Fair is now live on our website and it’s a one-of-a-kind beauty! Check it out, review your profile, and make sure everything looks a-ok including your icon, business name, bio, website, and Instagram.


Booth Assignments will be announced soon, once curation is complete. Stay tuned! You’ll receive another email in the coming weeks when this Participation Kit is updated.

It’s an exciting experience to come out of the studio and into a vibrant marketplace, so we’ve come up with a few tips that can help you make the most of your participation.

Give a smile, say hello, tell attendees about your products, offer samples, and make a connection! Shoppers might be put off if you’re on your phone or iPad, so keep that in mind when trying to make the most of your participation.

Business cards, buttons, postcards, catalogs, and other promotional materials are a great way to start the conversation with your potential buyers.

Include a mailing list sign-up at your booth, with signage to let folks know how to get in touch with you after the Fair, or how to follow you on social media.

Let buyers know that your business bio and links to your website and Instagram are also on the Renegade Craft website, in case they lose your information. Renegade reserves the right to select roster images and photos provided by the links submitted in your Participation Application. Our Roster is live, please check your business name, bio,  and links are accurate.

Most people’s priority is to sell their work at the Fair, but also remember your work is being seen by thousands of attendees. This is your chance to make a lasting impression on a large audience, which often leads to future online sales, wholesale orders, editorial features, and other amazing opportunities.

We strongly suggest bringing plenty of water, coffee, and snacks with you to keep you energized throughout the Fair. It is also helpful to bring a friend along to help run your booth and hold down the fort so you can take a couple of breaks throughout the day.
